Osamu Nagahama - The Island of Long Hot Nights (あつく長い夜の島 長浜治沖縄写真集), Haga Shoten, 1972, Tokyo

 

Softcover, with dustjacket and obi, signed. Text by Mineo Higashi.

"Nagahama's photographs of Okinawa show some of the hallmarks of the mature Provoke style - rough, grainy, and out of focus. Despite this, his images convey an extremely pointed critique of the U.S. presence on the Island, a constant since the end of W.W. II. Brilliantly printed, with blue and blue-green cyanotype toning interspersed with rich black-and-white this is a book whose closest counterpart - with which it certainly ranks with the high points of the Provoke movement."

Softcover, with dustjacket and obi, signed. Text by Mineo Higashi.

"Nagahama's photographs of Okinawa show some of the hallmarks of the mature Provoke style - rough, grainy, and out of focus. Despite this, his images convey an extremely pointed critique of the U.S. presence on the Island, a constant since the end of W.W. II. Brilliantly printed, with blue and blue-green cyanotype toning interspersed with rich black-and-white this is a book whose closest counterpart - with which it certainly ranks with the high points of the Provoke movement."
